More medical treatment ordered for former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak

He is serving a life sentence in a Cairo prison

He injured his head and chest in a fall this month

CNN  — 

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was transferred to a military hospital after doctors found fractures in his ribs from a recent fall, his lawyer said.

Egypt’s state prosecutor ordered the transfer. An update of Mubarak’s health was not given.

Mubarak suffered a head injury and a bruised chest when he slipped in a prison hospital bathroom this month. The 84-year-old is serving a life sentence in Cairo’s Tora prison for his role in the killing of pro-reform demonstrators during Egypt’s recent revolution.

This is the latest in a series of health problems for the ousted leader.

Mubarak’s three-decade iron-fisted rule ended in February 2011.
